Evening/Nighttime Workouts?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 06, 2011 at 9:29 PM

What is the general consensus on working out in the PM? I live in Finland and it gets dark here around 3, completely dark by 4pm. I find that for whatever reason my biggest motivation to workout comes between the hours of 7pm and 1am. I've always been a bit of a night owl, but I wasn't sure how good it is to get the heart rate pumping that late?

My brother, ErikOfRockford on PaleoHacks, says he doesn't like the late night workouts, especially for Carbing up post-workout (Earn Your Carbs!). I find that I get my biggest boost of energy after my dinner, which is usually between 6 and 8pm.

What are your words of wisdom, friends?

I prefer to do cardio in the morning before breakfast, but when I was more into weight-lifting I liked doing that in the evening after the crowd died down at the gym. It seemed like it helped my recovery to go to bed shortly after working out.

I don't have the luxury of deciding when I want to work out. With work, child care, and other things, I do it when I can. And it works.
